California's Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, commonly referred to as the California Lemon Law, was enacted in order to provide relief to buyers of problematic vehicles. Generally, the California Lemon Law applies to vehicles which the auto dealerships have been unable to repair within the warranty period after being given a reasonable number of opportunities. For qualifying vehicles, the automobile manufacturer must give the buyer his or her money back and pay off the outstanding loan balance or replace the vehicle with a comparable model.
The California Lemon Law also requires that the automobile manufacturer pay for the consumer's hourly attorney's fees on a meritorious claim. This makes the law economically feasible for those who would otherwise not be in a position to hire an attorney.
